Paul Millsap scored 22 points against the Heat on Saturday with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
His fantasy owners will want to keep their eyes peeled for an upcoming DNP due to rest. Looking at the schedule, the Hawks have another back-to-back coming up next Friday and Saturday, so Millsap owners will want to be on alert there. Millsap continues to stuff the stat sheet, but he's actually only been a mid-round guy since the break because of his struggles at the line recently. He's a top-25 player going forward.

Paul Millsap scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in the Hawks' 95-88 win over the Magic on Friday.

Not only are the Hawks fun to watch but Mike Budenholzer is all about a nice, tight fantasy rotation. DeMarre Carroll added 15 points, three treys, eight boards, two assists and three steals, Al Horford went for 17 and 13 with four assists and two steals, Jeff Teague went for 17 and seven, and Kyle Korver hit 2-of-5 shots (all threes) for eight points, three boards, one steal and two blocks in the win.

Paul Millsap blew up for 23 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in Sunday's road win vs. the Bucks.

He made 10-of-20 field goals including one 3-pointer and his efforts helped the Hawks snap a rare two-game losing streak. Millsap has maintained top-20 value all season, which is exactly where fantasy owners hoped he'd be on draft day.

Paul Millsap will replace Anthony Davis (shoulder) in the Shooting Stars competition.

Millsap's participation in this meaningless event would suggest that the minor hand injury he suffered during Wednesday's game will be a complete non-issue moving forward.
Feb 12 - 6:08 PM

Paul Millsap suffered a minor right hand injury on Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals on 3-of-11 shooting.

He played through the hand problem and it shouldn't be a big deal going forward, but probably contributed to his poor shooting tonight.
Feb 11 - 10:53 PM

Paul Millsap struggled vs. the Grizzlies' defense, finishing Sunday's defeat with four points on 2-of-10 shooting, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

Millsap took a hard elbow from Marc Gasol that caused him to use an icepack on his head and neck during timeouts, but the injury shouldn't threaten his status for Monday's game in Minnesota. His owners should take this poor game in stride -- it's the first time since mid-December that Millsap has been held to single-digit points and it came against a tough Memphis squad that ranks ninth in defensive efficiency.
Feb 8 - 8:43 PM

Paul Millsap scored 21 points with four rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

He just keeps putting up numbers and has been a top-10 fantasy asset in the last two weeks. Millsap is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down and has become an seven-category stud, especially with 2.2 steals per game in his last five. His owners shouldn't look to sell high unless it's for a guy with top-10 value.
Feb 7 - 12:24 AM

Paul Millsap's growing range has impressed head coach Mike Budenholzer.

After shooting just 31-of-113 from downtown over seven seasons with the Jazz, Millsap has made 47-of-129 three-point attempts this season. "I didn’t realize Paul could do this much," Budenholzer said. "We thought he was going to be versatile, but I think he’s more versatile. We thought he could extend his range...he’s followed through and done that." Millsap is averaging 20.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 2.2 three-pointers over his last five games and is on-pace to finish as a top-20 player in standard fantasy leagues.
Jan 29 - 12:18 PM

Paul Millsap had 28 points, 15 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 5-of-9 shooting as the Hawks beat the Nets on Wednesday for their 17th straight win.

He also hit 15-of-16 free throws, and is back on track at the line (in a big way) after a slow start this season. The Hawks have now won 31 of their last 33 games and are finally gaining the attention of the national media, for good reason. Additionally, the team matched last season's playoff-worthy win total of 38 and we're not even to the All-Star break yet.
Jan 29 - 1:51 AM

Paul Millsap filled up the stat sheet vs. Minnesota, notching 20 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, six assists and four steals.

The Sapper made 8-of-12 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs and committed only one turnover in 33 minutes, further endearing himself to fantasy owners. He's averaging a steady 2.0 triples over Atlanta's past four games and is second among all PF/Cs in steals per game (1.8), trailing only sticky-fingered Thaddeus Young.
Jan 25 - 8:50 PM

Paul Millsap scored 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting (including two threes) with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks as the Hawks beat the Thunder in a 103-93 win.

The Hawks look like a well-oiled machine and the Thunder don't look like they've developed for the last four years. DeMarre Carroll was solid with 13 points, four rebounds, three assists and three treys, Al Horford went for 14 and 12 with a three, steal, three blocks and three assists, and Jeff Teague scored 17 points with nine assists and some spare change in the win.
Jan 24 - 1:02 AM

Paul Millsap filled the stat sheet against the Raptors on Friday with 16 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

He made both free throws and 6-of-9 from the field in an eight-category masterpiece. Millsap has multiple steals and blocks in each of his last two games and the reality NBA world is starting to learn what the fantasy world already knew long ago: Millsap is a stud.
Jan 16 - 11:27 PM

Paul Millsap filled the stat sheet against the Celtics during a 105-91 win on Thursday with 18 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer.

The Hawks won their 10th straight and have gone 24-2 since Thanksgiving to help them build a four-game lead over the rest of the Eastern Conference. Millsap hasn't been shooting the ball too well and his defensive stats are down, so he hasn't been his usual beast self. Of course, he's likely going to get hot in a hurry as a top-25 asset in standard leagues.
Jan 15 - 12:41 AM

Paul Millsap (rest) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, and Mike Muscala will draw the start in his place.

This will be Muscala's first start of the season, and with a favorable matchup against the 76ers, he could put up some useable stats. However, he remains a risky option and most of the production will likely fall to guys like Dennis Schroder, Al Horford, and Kyle Korver.

Paul Millsap didn't do much during his 25 minutes of action on Sunday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with two rebounds, three assists, and two turnovers.

This game wasn't even close, and the Hawks had eight different guys in double-figures, so that explains the semi-dud. Look for Millsap to bounce-back during the Hawks' next game with an extremely favorable matchup against the lowly 76ers on Tuesday.
